Warmed up? Here's the second beauty:

 

HMS Gallant (H59)

 

This mid-1930s G-class ship had seen a lot - starting with neutrality patrols during the Spanish Civil War. She suffered light damage during the evacuation of Dunkirk and escorted numerous convoys in the Mediterranean. Does Operation Excess ring a bell?

I'm somewhat confused as to why Gallant has been picked to represent the G-class Destroyers as a Premium rather than Glowworm

Gallant probably for her longer wartime career, plus connection to Operation Dynamo  and the Med.

Well, I'm not going to lie, I'm a little disappointed, I would have thought the efforts of Glowworm to ram the Admiral Hipper would have made her a perfect candidate as an interesting and significant premium, especially when the Hipper has Glowworm written on her turret ingame, a nice nod to the real ship. Additionally Glowworm's commander, Gerard Broadmead Roope was awarded a posthumous VC for his actions which is quite something (the first VC awarded in WWII iirc). Glowworm is the perfect candidate in my opinion.

You really do want WG EU to go into the ramming missions for destroyers, do you?

Glowworm will be a tier 7 with 2x5 prototype torpedo launchers but I can think of many normal spec A-G class destroyers I'd prefer over Gallant.

 

Electra is the most famous, being involved in Narvik with Warspite, Hunt for Bismarck with Hood and Battle of the Java Sea with Perth. (plus many more)

 

Oh yeah, the Christopher Nolan film Dunkirk isn't far off. That's why..... Shame it wasn't HMS Havant which was sunk during the evacuation (and another ship for my J.S White collection :hiding:)

How about premium german DD, just to have a premium in every class in that line?

Come on Gravy spill the beans. What inside info do you have? Do we get an RN DD  line this year? She will defiantly be in my port. But she is a strange choice for a Prem. Many more more famous DD from from around that time

You know more than me! Fingers crossed we get a DD line this year but expect Gallant to be released at the same time as Dunkirk in July.

 

These are small torpedo boats with low gun DPM so...

 

B to G class, inc Gallant (2x4 Mk IX) = Tier 6, balanced around Hatsuharu.

I class, inc Glowworm (2x5 Mk IX) = Tier 7, balanced around Shiratsuyu.

 

Fun fact.

A stock Gallant has a 0.4% chance to shoot down a tier 6 plane at 1.2km. Add all the buffs and you have a 0.6% chance to shoot down a tier 6 plane at 1.7km. :trollface:

Any German DD did anything apart from beeing sunk during war?

Plenty.

 

T-23 and T-27 managed to sink HMS Charybdis for example.

Well we have a USN DD USS Sims.. She did nothing but get Sunk in WW2. So whats your beef.  Its a perfectly reasonable Request.

 

4 DD tech line nations

 

USN has 2/4 Prem DD

SN has 2/3 Prem DD

IJN Loads of Prem DD

German Tech tree 0 Prem DD

 number after / is DDs no longer available or Reward DD

Never thought I'd be excited about RN DDs before...the Campbeltown never interested me (probably because it's just a US DD with less firepower).

I thought that surely the only RN DD that would get me excited would be Glowworm, but here I am totally looking forward to find out Gallant's stats.

 

She is a little cutie, afterall. :child:

Glowworm will most likely be in the main tree as it was the lead of the class.

Probably not. Glowworm was a test ship for a quintuple torpedo tube mounts which were later used on almost all subsequent classes. If they add it to the game it would be probably be a T7 premium. Or they will have to nerf something if they want to fit it at T7 because 10 toprs salvo at T6 would be a little too much.

There won't be a G-class tech tree destroyer, it'll be a mashup of interwar variations/refits from A-Class to I-Class. (Total of ~77 ships)

WG could split them into 4 separate variants or lump them all together. Who knows what they'll do!

Good thing that Kandly asked us for our thoughts...And I don't see how stating that I don't expect anything is trolling.

But then I saw who edited the post and realized that even saying "hi" will be considered as trolling....:fishpalm:

I will retreat as the censorship in this thread is toooooooo high.
